Enjoyed the buffet menu, The rooms were very comforting, all round was very tidy, grounds and staff were lovely
I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at this Hotel. We were there as part of a birthday crowd and chose to stay on... I would definitly concider returning. Food was delish! Staff were great, room was comforting overall enjoyed it
Michael C. Couples Australia, August 9, 2014
Disapointing facility - exterior gives false impre

close to town for restaurants
Pre-paid 2 rooms (3 people in total)for two non-consecutive nights. First night no electric jug in one room and room heating (a/c) on 'cold', in both rooms. Asked office staff to replace jug - promised, but not done. One teaspoon in both units only. VERY small rooms and limited space around hand basins for toileteries. One room had a combined bath/shower with broken towel rail, used by previous occupant(s) as 'assist rail'. Need to make sure toilet seat is closed, if using wc cistern for necessary storage space. Overpriced for what was provided. Second night (different rooms) had electric jugs in both rooms, prompted by my displeasure on earlier stay. Now two teaspoons per room, but no bath towels in one room. Towels were provided reasonably quickly, as was a toaster. Power point for electric shaver displayed, but no power. Their restaurant prices very high, by motel standards. Both stays were considered overpriced, and POOR VALUE FOR MONEY !

Great Place to stay

Clean, great staff and management & price.
These guys deserve some free advertising, great place to stay, great staff & management, go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Best price ever for really clean & modern rooms, hard to beat, in fact I will discussing with my management around our company staying here as well for work as really reasonable. Food is excellent.

Tired, run-down motel. Adequate facilities.

Location, parking, grounds.
Uncomfortable bed with the 'roll-together' problem and thin pillows. No iron in cupboard, though there was an ironing board. Gluten free bread was provided, but no GF cereal, even though 2 weeks notice was given, when booking was made. Buffet breakfast was always running low, or out of the popular dishes. The same with the coffee dispenser, which as everybody knows, is essential to keep topped up, if you want to keep your customers happy. The price was good though.

Short and sweet

Friendly staff, great breakfast, fast room service
Very good However the stay was too short. Would loved to have taken advantage of the great areas to work to.
Joseph K. Solo travelers United States of America, November 19, 2013

Quite, clean, and scenic
Relaxing; however it was a little expensive. Overall, a fulfilling stay

Dzulkifly A. Families with older children Malaysia, August 5, 2013
Adequate for a quick stay

Location was central and a stones throw away from the riverfront walk, shops and cafes. Parking was plentiful and the rooms were situated nicely away from the main road and public traffic.
Check in was quick and informative. Though the rooms were reasonably comfortable, they were a little small and the heating in the rooms was via a manual switch on the AC wall unit. Central heating with a timer would have been preferable, especially in the winter. Another issue which I have with many hotels and F&B establishments in NZ is the lack of free wifi. This is a step behind many Asian countries where it is almost a norm for customers to enjoy free wifi. All in all not too bad a motel but certainly more suited to the single business traveller attending meetings than a family of 4 on holiday visiting friends.
